Autism Spectrum Conditions
Since 1996 Care Management Group (CMG) has supported adults and children with Autism and Asperger’s syndrome and related conditions such as Fragile X Syndrome, Pathological Demand Avoidance, Dyspraxia and Sensory Processing Disorders. We also support people who have associated complex needs such as attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), and mental health conditions such as obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety disorders.
People with Autism Spectrum Conditions often require specialist services including support for additional complex mental health needs and/or behaviours that may challenge. Care Management Group’s (CMG)’s specialist services have been adapted to offer low arousal environments, specialist support and therapy input.
A holistic Positive Behaviour Support and Total Communication approach facilitates increased inclusion and engagement. This approach is led by our Psychologist/PBS Team Manager, and provides staff with access to high and low tech communication aids, as well as best practice in positive behavior support.
All our teams receive comprehensive internal specialist training on autism spectrum conditions. This training is delivered by specialist trainers and when available, one of the people we support.
